I'm 2 weeks out from my target date for my cut (target date of 3/21 @ 8%). I'm currently around 11% and I'm well hydrated. I will definitely cut water and what not a few days out, but I really need to do something to speed things up. You can see my training and diet in great detail in my journal, but basically I'm currently maintaining PSMF as closely as possible, with the exception of 40g dextrose pre-workout.
My daily protein intake sits around 275-300g, my carbs on training days are 50g and on non-training days are <10g. Fats are between 20-40 grams - almost all EFAs/fish oil/etc. Supplements used daily are MHP Drenbuterol, Nitrean, EFAs, fish oil, multivitamin, 5g creatine/day (split in 12 hour doses), Results, First Order (B-Alanine product), Ibuprofen, ETS and occasionally BSN Lean Dessert.
I have been doing tremendously well with this diet, but would like to accelerate things in this final stretch. When I cut the creatine and dump water, I should look considerably leaner, but just by feeling around my body, I still feel any fat is on my lower back/lower abs, the rest feels like water. How can I cut this? I'm using Yohimbine HCL in a good amount already in the dren.
Even though it will suck, should I incorporate HIIT every morning when I wake up? I'm afraid I will just eat muscle from the intense caloric deficit and heavy westside training I have been doing (although, I have retained and possibly even gained LBM on this cut - my muscles look like they've grown - could be a side effect of losing BF)...
Maybe, longer, low-intensity cardio like 60 min of fast walk/light jog to focus on burning the free fatty acids in my blood stream and not tax the non-existent glycogen stores/cause my body to break down excess protein??
Again, anyone that has experience with this PLEASE I would really appreciate the help. I've made phenomenal progress over the past 11 weeks (lost over 30 pounds and 10% in bodyfat) and it would really make me feel like I accomplished everything if I could hit my target.
For those of you who haven't seen my journal, my cut has involved several weeks of carb cycling, followed by several weeks of UD2, followed by several weeks of PSMF. My training has been mostly strength oriented and I've put on tremendous amounts of strength. Is now the time to get the cardio ball rolling? I was thinking early morning pill of dren (with the yohimbine), followed by an hour of low intensity cardio?
I don't mind to lose a little bit of LBM, I desperately want to get my 8% (or lower).
Just to add my current stats: 212 lb @ ~11% (4 abs clearly defined, outline of 6 starting to show, very lean arms/legs/back), 47" chest, 16.5" arms, 12.75" forearms, 37" inch waist (fattest part - I have THICK abs), 25" thigh.
